You can chalk this up to a useless talent you'll (hopefully) never have to use, but doesn't hurt to know just in case.

As far as the military and police goes, at least to my knowledge, they normally zip tie you with your hands behind your back. And this might have something to do with why. This young women showed how easy it is to break out of them if they're tied in the front. I have had yet to test this theory to see if it actually works, but it looks sound.
